Originally, Anchorage was nothing more than a simple tent city set against the backdrop of the ocean inlet and the mighty mountain ranges at the mouth of the Ship Creek. It was first formed in 1914. The town started to emerge as permanent structures within a year. It was initially a company town for the Alaska Railroad but eventually, it became a hub for military facilities, especially during World War II. During the war years, the population started to expand and it quickly became an economics base for the state. Sadly, in 1964, the Alaska earthquake caused considerable damage. However, the city was quickly rebuilt and started to grow at an even faster rate. Today, the population of Anchorage hovers just under 300,000 residents.
The diversity of the natural features around Anchorage are astounding. Boreal forests, glaciers, tundra, and towering volcanic ranges are just a few of the unique things that surround the city. The region is a combination of a marine ecosystem combined with a temperate rainforest. You can explore beaches, waterfalls, and hot springs. The 20 plus hot springs occur as a result of the region's geothermal activity.
Within 50 miles of Anchorage are 60 glaciers. Many are accessible and open for the public to view.
